    Hello everyone, I am Sakesan from Thailand. All my friends call me Sake or Sek. I join this website because I like the slingshot x bow video (Joerg's videos). I would like to know more about these, they seem to be very wonderful....Sake

    Welcome to the start of a great adventure Sake!

    I'm still learning lots about building launchers. A simple one can be built out of whatever you have around. A slingshot at the end of a 2X2 (51X51mm) about 1.5 meters long is my first launcher. I learned a lot about pouches and matching the ammo weight to the rubber with it.

    Hope you enjoy your time here

    Thank you everyone for the nice welcoming. I am of course planing to make one for myself. It will be something for pest exterminator, (I have got some rats and squirrel in my area). Yesterday I went through a few threads, and I think this is a nice place to be. Right now I am trying to gather as much information as I can before going to make one....Sake

    Hi Sake,

    I am Allan the Aussie retired to Kanchanaburi, and married to the best Thai/Japanese lady ever.

    So where are you ?

    I am not so much into slingbows though, just very powerful slingshots.
    Currently I shoot either double .04 latex, or triple theraband gold, stretched to 550%; min weight is 20 grams, going up to 35 plus grams.

    Cheers Allan

    Thanks again everyone for the welcoming. Alan, I live in Ubon, which is the Easternmost part of Thailand, and Nice to know you. I actually spent most of my academic years (nearly 10 years) in Australia, a few years in Queensland, few in NSW, and few in Melbourne. Can you kindly tell me where do you get you theraban in Thailand, if you don't mind telling me offcourse. I plan to make myself a kind of sling x bow very soon. Thank you in advance....Sake

    Cool sake, i buy my Theraband online and import it.

    Actually I have 2 sheets arriving next week, via my mother address in Melbourne, where she posts it on from.

    Other slingshot from the U.S.A. and other countries; I have delivered directly to me here; provided they fill out the Customs declaration, there are no Thai Customs restrictions on slingshots.

    I suggest both Bill Hays Pocket Predator and Nathans Simple Shots as top of the line slingshot makers

    Cheers Allan
